Po­lice hands over Lagos PDP sec­re­tariat to Bode Ge­orge

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Lagos

The Lagos Po­lice Com­mand yes­ter­day handed over keys of the PDP sec­re­tariat to the for­mer Deputy Na­tional Chair­man of the party, Chief Ola­bode Ge­orge.

The sec­re­tariat, lo­cated along Adekunle Fa­juyi Shogunle GRA, was shut on Thurs­day last week fol­low­ing a lead­er­ship tus­sle in the state chap­ter.

The build­ing was how­ever re­opened for the ex­ec­u­tive, led by the Mas­hood Salvador, who is rec­og­nized by the Na­tional Care­taker Com­mit­tee of the party un­der Se­na­tor Ahmed Makarfi.

The fac­tion chaired by Mr Se­gun Ade­wale, pop­u­larly known as Aero Land, who was loyal to Se­na­tor Ali Modu Sher­iff, was hitherto oc­cu­py­ing the sec­re­tariat.

The Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice in the state, Mr Fatai Owoseni, handed over the keys to Ge­orge, fol­low­ing a letter from the na­tional care­taker com­mit­tee, which con­firmed Salvador as the chair­man.

Ge­orge said the Supreme Court judge­ment had re­solved the lead­er­ship cri­sis in the party.

He said the lead­er­ship of Salvador was not in con­tention be­cause the Na­tional Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee (NEC) did not in­clude Lagos as one of the states with lead­er­ship is­sues.
